  • Pattern: Canadian
  • Made in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
  • Antique: 1870’s
  • Details:  This is a lovely clear glass footed bowl, candy dish or compote by Burlington Glass Works in Canada.  The compote has a pressed pattern, three different scenes divided by ivy leaves within a pattern of tiny raised dots , known as stippling.  One scene shows a lake with a sailboat, another shows a village with mountains and another has a river and large rocks.  We are guessing these are all scenes from the Canada wilderness.  The foot has a pretty pattern as well with long bands. Great as a serving piece, as a candy dish, in the bathroom with soaps or guest towels, with potpourri, or lovely on its own.

Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG), also known as pressed glass, was produced from roughly 1850 to 1910. Cheaper to manufacture than blown glass, this glassware was made in cast-iron molds and marketed as an economic alternative to hand-cut crystal. Manufacturers made a wide range of patterns in order to compete with each other, usually patenting their work.

Burlington Glass Works, was founded in 1874 in Hamilton, Ontario.  It was called Burlington Glass Works because it overlooked the Burlington Bay from Hamilton, Ontario (not because it was located in Burlington Ontario).   This company was one of the most important 19th century glass houses in Canada in terms of the variety and quality of its production. From 1874 to about 1897 skilled artisans produced lamps, tableware, glass vessels and containers. Glass-production techniques included free-blowing, mould-blowing and pressing in a mould.  The glassware was decorated using different methods like: cutting, painting, sand-blasting, acid-etching and wheel-engraving.  From 1840 to 1890 the glass business was a time of uncertainty and instability; Anyone attempting to this market had to to contend with strong competition from the American companies. This led to the bankruptcy of  Burlington Glass Works.  Hamilton Glass Works bought Burlington Glass Works initially to discourage new competition and it became the most productive of the two plants. In 1892 fire severely damaged the Burlington Glass Works facility and it was closed in 1897.
